|Subject:||Dickason, Olive, Morrison, Kenneth M., Myth of the Savage|
Kenneth Morrison from Arizona State University reviewed Dickason's book "The Myth of the Savage and the Beginnings of French Colonialism in the Americas." Excerpt: “Olive Dickason presents a searching overview of the many frontiers on which Native Americans and Europeans fist met. At one level, the study assesses the social dynamics which channelled the encounter. At another, it details the developing economic, political, and legal rationale for colonization. Still more, Dickason frames her three sections and thirteen chapters with a fresh re-examination of the cross-cultural sources of what soon become the “Indian problem”. This study works.”
